Helius Medical Technologies, Inc. (HSDT)
We are reporting on Helius Medical Technologies, Inc. (HSDT), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Helius Medical Technologies, Inc. is a medical technology company with its corporate headquarters in Newtown, Pennsylvania. Its focus is neurological wellness. The Company works to develop, license, and acquire innovative non-invasive treatments designed to amplify the brain’s ability to heal itself. NeuroHabilitation is a division of Helius Medical Technologies. NeuroHabilitation is developing a unique technology as a potential treatment for neurological symptoms caused by disease or trauma. Helius Medical Technologies lists on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB.
The Company’s intention is to file for U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for the PoNS™ device. The PoNS™ device is a non-invasive means for delivering neurostimulation through the tongue. Researchers believe that use of the tongue as a gateway to the brain may be one of the most natural, non-invasive and direct ways to stimulate the brain.
PoNS™ Therapy combines the use of the device with physical therapy. At present, it is undergoing evaluation in a multicenter clinical trial for the treatment of balance disorder for subjects with mild to moderate Traumatic Brain Injury.
The NeuroHabilitation division signed a Collaborative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the US Department of Defense in 2013. This is to develop and manage clinical and regulatory activities for the PoNS™ device and CN-NINM technologies.
Helius announced in July 2015 that NeuroHabilitation successfully executed a sole source cost sharing contract with the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC). The contract will support Helius’ registrational trial investigating the safety and effectiveness of the Portable Neuromodulation Stimulator (PoNS™). PoNS™ is undergoing development for the treatment of balance disorder in patients with mild-to-moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI). The PoNS™ is being studied in Canada for chronic balance and gait symptoms caused by Multiple Sclerosis.
This past June, Helius announced the results of a case series of individuals with advanced symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) treated with PoNS™ Therapy. The study was performed at TCNL1, University of Wisconsin, Madison. The data was presented at the 2016, Annual Meeting of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC).
Six subjects with advanced MS (Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS)2 scores ranging from 6.5 to 7.5) were enrolled in a six-month pilot study. Subjects were trained in PoNS™ Therapy. Results demonstrated improvements in physical, cognitive, and also quality of life parameters. Moreover, the demanding training regimen resulted in major real life improvements, including re-adopting a walker for community mobility, reduced fatigue, increased independence with daily activities, overcoming physical obstacles at home, and increased community access.
This week, Helius Medical Technologies announced that Mr. Thomas Griffin will join the Board of Directors, effective immediately. In addition, Mr. Griffin will serve as Chairman of the Audit Committee. He is currently Vice President of Finance for Entellus Medical, Inc. (ENTL).

Laguna Blends Inc. (LAGBF)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Laguna Blends Inc. (LAGBF). Today, Laguna Blends Inc. closed trading at $0.24371, even with yesterday's close. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 19,331, and its 52-week low/high is $0.069/$0.267.
Laguna Blends Inc. is pleased to update the success and Pro Athlete brand strategy of “Pro369”, Laguna’s hemp protein, instant, functional beverage. Naturally Splendid provided the research and development of all four of the flavours of Pro369 for Laguna. The Minister of Health has granted Laguna a product license along with a Natural Product Number for all four of the Pro369 Flavours further validating the commercial viability of HempOmega™. Laguna and NSE have previously entered into a manufacturing agreement for Pro369.
Laguna Blends Inc. (LAGBF) is a network marketing company focused on the generation of sales through independent affiliates. Leveraging innovative tools and technologies, the company's affiliates are able to build international businesses from their own homes while effectively capitalizing on the performance of some of the world's most rapidly expanding, in-demand markets. To date, Laguna's primary focus has been on the hyper growing hemp food and beverage marketplace. As part of these efforts, the company introduced Caffe, a hemp-infused instant coffee product, and is preparing to launch Pro369, a water soluble hemp protein powder.
As a network marketing company, Laguna is strategically positioned to grow very quickly following its entry into the rapidly expanding hemp market space. In early March 2016, the company gave prospective shareholders a preview of this potential when it launched sales of its protein coffee beverage through 135 independent affiliates throughout the United States and Canada. In less than a week, Laguna's affiliate base grew by more than 100 percent to include 278 independent marketers, demonstrating the high levels of demand for functional beverage products across North America, as well as the considerable interest in the viable business opportunity Laguna presents to its affiliates.
Through the commercialization of Caffe and Pro369, Laguna is establishing a foothold in two high-demand global markets. According to reports from the Coffee Association of Canada (CAC), coffee is consumed by a larger proportion of adults than any other beverage, excluding water. In recent years, the emergence of energy drinks has slowed the coffee industry's performance, but the single cup serving market, of which Caffe is a part, has maintained steady growth, rising above 32 percent market share as of January 2014, according to Mintel Research. With a product in this space - as well as the global hemp industry, which was valued at nearly $500 million in 2012 by the Hemp Industries Association - Laguna's initial offerings position it strongly for sustainable growth.
With growth through its marketing network already underway, Laguna has turned its attention toward further expansion of its product line. In March 2016, the company signed a letter of intent with Robert Lamberton Consulting regarding the development of a "Limitless functional beverage brain health and memory coffee" product. Under the terms of this LOI, all hard costs associated with the development of the product will be billed to Robert Lamberton Consulting. The two parties are expected to enter into a formal research and development agreement outlining the details of this arrangement in the second quarter of 2016.
Laguna is the first network marketing Company to use exciting virtual 3D technology to enable affiliates to train, recruit and drive sales by utilizing a simple interactive platform. Laguna believes this technology is a game changer in the Direct Selling / Network Marketing Industry. Disclaimer

By creating a fully-immersive, cloud office environment for real estate professionals, eXp effectively reduces agents' overhead, increases their profits and provides greater service value to consumers.
Through eXp Realty's innovative platform, agents and brokers are afforded the opportunity to earn equity in exchange for production and contributions to company growth. Additionally, eXp features an aggressive revenue sharing program that pays agents a percentage of the gross commission income earned by fellow professionals they recruit into the company. The result is a shared ownership community featuring a synergistic and collaborative group of forward-thinking, entrepreneurial professionals. With the emergence of the internet as the most powerful property marketing and advertising medium, eXp's internet and cloud technologies have helped thousands of consumers find, buy or sell homes without the need for a brick and mortar real estate office.
Since its launch in October 2009, eXp Realty has experienced rapid growth, with brokerage service now offered in 35 U.S. states and Alberta, Canada. In February 2016, the company officially welcomed its 1,000th real estate professional into its family of agent-owners, up from just 467 agents at the end of 2014. Following this achievement, the Agent-Owned Cloud Brokerage claimed a spot among the top 50 real estate brokerages in the United States based on agent count, according to data from RISMEDIA's 2015 PowerBroker 500 Report.
Similarly, eXp Realty generated record financial results during 2015. Following the launch of two new initiatives – including an online lead generation program and a stock compensation plan – the company achieved a 71 percent year-over-year increase in net revenues, recording $22.87 million for the year. As it continues to expand its footprint across North America, eXp Realty will look to leverage its unique agent-owned business model to continue attracting driven, entrepreneurial agents and real estate industry leaders while promoting sustainable financial growth.
